"This little tractor has done all I've asked of it so far. My use is periodic weekends as it's kept at my vacation property in Pennsylvania. I use it for mowing, planting food plots, and collecting sap for sugaring.
It's gearing is such that it loses power to climb a hill, even small ones, when in 2nd gear unless I ramp up the RPMS. I have personally never placed this tractor into 3rd gear. I bought it 2nd hand at decent value considering it came with a brush hog and heavy duty bucket installed."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy ability to change implements.Cons: Power concerns for PA hillside climbing.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA MDI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
My New Holland TC29D
by Randy Eiken
Model year: 2001Date Purchased: 2013-03-18Number of Hours: 818
"I have owned this tractor for about 1 year. When I purchased it came with a 72" mid mount mower. I have used it to do some mowing, which it handle well with the 3 range hydro transmission. I have also used it to run a 5 ft. 3 point tiller, a 6 ft. 3 point tandem disc, and a 6 ft. box blade which the tractor handled well with the 4x4 setup it has even with turf tires front and rear. I have recently been using the tractor with a 7 ft. swivel 3 point blade to do snow removal. The tractor has done everything I have asked it to do.
I would like to have a front end loader for the tractor but unfortunately the new cost of an aftermarket loader to fit is almost as much as I paid for the tractor and mower deck . So I am keeping an eye out for a used loader, but they are hard to come by."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Tractor has a lot of features for the dollars I paid for it used. Good power and all the bells and whistles I wanted.Cons: This early model TC29D has a lighter duty front axle than later models, which limits the loader lift capacity.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA MOI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Glorified Lawn Mower

Model year: 2000Date Purchased: 2005-09-30Number of Hours: 1800
"TC29 came with the house. Does not have loader. Nice 3-pt. Needs weights in front due to 2WD. Bush hogs great, box blades great. Neck is sore due to driving backwards and next time will get the hydro-static trans.
First tractor, serves its purpose, but could use one with more features. Horse farmette 5 acres. Needs a cup holder and a tool box!"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Holding value.Cons: Strip model good for mowing pastures and that's it.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA VAI also considered buying: Kubota B2100 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
New Holland TC-29

"I haven't used this tractor enough to review it. We will moving mid January and then we'll be using it a lot. Sorry, I guess I jumped the gun on signing up on TractorByNet.
On another note, My sil uses it daily to clean horse stalls and mow her grass. She says the tractor is a work horse and is wonderful."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy to handle, variety of attachments available.Cons: None that I know of.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OHI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
New Holland TC29 4WD
Model year: 2000Date Purchased: 2001-01-05Number of Hours: 900
"Overall a great little tractor for less than 10 acres. I have used this tractor mowing with a 5 ft brush cutter, 8 ft sickle bar, and a 4 ft disc cutter with no problem. The 4WD helps the tractor pull a 5 ft box blade with no problem. I regularly use a 5 ft rotary tiller, but at a low speed as the PTO hp is only 25 claimed. It has no problem pulling an 8 ft rake. I recently purchased a mid size round baler which the tractor can handle except at the tightest bale setting due to the PTO claimed power of 25 hp. Rear three point lifts most large round bales, but only recommend max size at 5 ft round bales due to light weight of tractor and maintaining safety. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Great tractor for size and prices.Cons: Seat uncomfortable after an hour of continued use.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA TXI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Super Handy Tractor
Model year: 2001Date Purchased: 2003-09-20Number of Hours: 869
"As its third owner, I bought this tractor with 40 hours on the clock. Over nine years it was used for about another 830 hours.
It worked great at everything asked of it. Sure, it could use more lifting capacity and power. But those features are available in larger tractors for more money.
The least appreciated aspect was the effect the short wheel base had on batteries. The jarring ride over bumpy terrain caused acid to spill and that caused corrosion on the battery tray and hardware, and also ate on the paint at the front end of the tractor. Typical batteries also don't respond well to G shocks. So after replacing the lead acid battery a couple times, an Optima sealed battery was installed. No more acid spilled and the battery was still doing fine a couple years later when the tractor was sold.
And the tractor held value very well."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Handy, reliable, good value and value retention.Cons: Lead acid battery, which can be replaced by a sealed battery.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA TXI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
I Love This Tractor

Model year: 1998Date Purchased: 1998-10-15Number of Hours: 500
"It's small enough to get in & around stuff but powerful enough to perform all I ask of it. I lover the front loader & use it constantly for firewood, driveway upkeep, dirt moving etc w/ the drag blade on the back. The 4wd mowing on my steep hills is a breeze."

"I have been using the tractor fir about a week and I'm very happy with the performance of it fir its size. The 4WD is a must and is very useful. That being said I do have a problem with the rear PTO but hopefully its not too expensive to repair."

"I've owned my TC 29 for a little over a month now and really love it. I bought it used with about 900 hours on it, it has a hydrostat trans and is equipped with a 68 inch FEL, a Woods 7500 backhoe and R4 tires. A previous owner had the fronts filled with foam and the rears filled with Calcium. I have mixed feelings about the Calcium filled rear tires, the traction and stability they provide is incredible, however I'm concerned about corrosion to the rims. The Woods backhoe works great, very smooth and powerful, the FEL also works great.
Soon after purchase, I changed out all the fluids and filters, which was easy and straight forward. Because of the combination of having a backhoe and filled tires, this tractor is very heavy for its size which means it has great traction and digging performance, but it will leave ruts in your lawn.
Overall I like this tractor very much and would recommend it. "

"I bought this tractor from a Deere dealer as a trade in. The hour meeter was showing 303 hours. I test drove the tractor in the lot and everything seamed to work. So I bought the tractor, loaded it up, and took it home.
When I backed it off the trailer, the power steering started failing, and there was power steering fluid everywhere. It turned out to be the power steering filter was stopped up and a new filter was over 100 dollars. Then the parking brake would not work because the cable was broken. I noticed a noise under the tractor while moving, checked it out and I found the drive shaft yokes splines fot the front wheel drive were worn out, all flopping around. The estimate cost was close to $500.00 just for the parts!
While brush hogging the wires that connect to the neutral switch on the side of the trany (that is almost impossible to reach without taking the back tire off ) came unconnected shorting out the safety circuit not allowing the tractor to start. And this is a tractor with only 303 hours on it! "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Good looking, very comfortable, easy on fuel. I like the way the hood raises out of the way for maintenance. Cons: The hydrostat foot feet control is very hard to operate (coward to control) and is on the same side as the turning brakes. Impossible for turning. What were they thinking? The hand controls are very stiff and not very user friendly.Type of User: Commercial LandscapeLocation: USA OKI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
